Meet Ricco Bambino
The First Urban Winery in the Okanagan Valley

Ricco Bambino is a different type of winery. Newly opened in the heart of downtown Kelowna, this is the Okanagan’s first urban winery. Every vintage, they select only the best organic grapes from vineyards throughout the South Okanagan Valley. With quality grapes and a light winemaker’s touch, Ricco Bambino has a portfolio of electric, terroir-driven wines. 

Ricco Bambino is fundamentally different from other wineries and wine bars in the Okanagan and beyond. The design of this space is an extension of the wines that are crafted and served. A combination of pastel-toned pink walls with an Art Deco-style reflect the essence of the wine within a physical space. The goal is to achieve a lightness and a sense of celebration when you walk through the front doors. Ricco Bambino is opulent, fresh, daring, bright, airy and a bit of fun while showcasing their expressive and lively wines perfectly. 
The People + Story Behind the Wines
Owner, Jason Alton is a Kelowna native who, since 2002, has been involved in the premium denim business in Australia, South East Asia and New Zealand. In 2015 he decided to sell his shares in the company, Nudie Jeans, and move back to Kelowna. A goal for Jason was to conceive a product to share internationally so it brought attention not only back to the product, but back to the region as a whole. 

Jason started Rico Bambino as a result of many years drinking wine from the Valley from various sub-regions and wanted to create something different. He envisioned clean, single varietal wines that spoke of the area without the use of oak and the flavours that it imparts in wine. Rico Bambino wines are made in a minimal intervention style so nothing is added and nothing is taken away. All of the wines are single varietal and most of them are from a single vineyard. Only native yeasts are used as opposed to adding commercial yeast and the majority of the wines are unfined and unfiltered. 
On-site at Ricco Bambino there is very limited space to work with so they have 3 unlined concrete tanks, which creates about 500 cases of the 3500 cases that they produce in total. It’s remarkable and revolutionary in the Okanagan that they are producing wine in an urban centre. The rest of the wine is being crafted at Okanagan Crush Pad under the direction of Matt Dumayne. Matt has a ‘less is more’ approach to winemaking that fits perfectly with Ricco Bambino's hands-off philosophy. Okanagan Crush Pad is Canada’s first purpose-built custom crush winery facility. Located in Summerland, it's a type of large wine incubator where they crush and ferment their own wines, Haywire and Narrative, as well as other smaller wineries' portfolios. 

Ricco Bambino is proudly one of the few Okanagan wineries that only uses concrete vessels to age their wines. This plays an important role in crafting the style of wine they love. Concrete is porous so ageing in these neutral vessels allows the wines to breathe and develop a round, textural feel without the addition of any flavours imparted by the use of oak or additives. Creating these pure and authentic wines with wild yeasts and minimal intervention brings out the authentic taste of the land. 

Organic grapes are hand harvested from Okanagan Falls, Oliver and Osoyoos in whole clusters. The fermentation begins with nothing more than the wild yeast that occurs within the vineyard. This process is somewhat risky; however, it’s the only sure way to craft wines that reflect the area where the grapes were grown and the vintage. 
The long-term goal for Ricco Bambino is to plant their own organic vineyards to ensure they always have enough organically grown grapes for the portfolio. In fact, they just purchased 12 acres in the Oliver area near McIntyre Bluff. Ricco Bambino South will have a tasting room too, so you can taste the wines in two locations.
About The Wines
This Pack

As a brand new winery, Ricco Bambino is thrilled to have a chance to share their bright and electric wines with OWC members. To begin with, bubbles! Both the 2017 Very Troubled Child Rose Brut and 2017 Kicked Out of the Country Club Brut are made in the Charmat Method. Unlike Traditional Method fermentation, whereby the second fermentation happens in the bottle, with Charmat or Tank Method it takes place in a large, closed pressurized tank. Also called Metodo Italiano, this route is taken when you want to preserve the freshness and intensity of the grapes' aromas. Next is the 2017 Rose, made with 100% Cabernet Franc. This is a wild ferment in stainless steel for aromatic retention. This savoury rosé is an exceptional representation of land and a light hand in the winery. The 2017 Viognier is a single-vineyard wine. A wild ferment occurred in concrete at slightly warmer temperature for enhanced textural aspects followed by concrete ageing on gross lees for a further 6 months. This wine is unfined and unfiltered. 

It’s very rare in the Okanagan to taste red wines that haven’t spent time in oak. Both of these reds are incredibly bright, juicy and structured. Both are also unfined and unfiltered for full palate concentration. The 2017 Merlot is layered with great texture and mouthwatering acidity and notes of concentrated blueberries, dark chocolate and fig. 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and beautiful. Look for flavours of blackberry, tobacco, violet and coffee. Decanting is recommended for both of these wines. 

Ricco Bambino is proud to be a minimal intervention boutique winery, producing expressive, small batch, and single varietal offerings. Come for a taste, stay for a glass, leave with a bottle.

Hear What Other Okanagan Wine Enthusiasts Are Saying
At OkanaganWine.Club, we work hard to give our members a fantastic experience. From the wine quality to the shipping process and beyond, we strive to leave you satisfied with your purchase. That’s why local wine lovers like you are saying things like this:
We’re proud to offer you a great selection of wines and as a member of the Okanagan Wine Club, you’re part of a unique wine experience that has its own Okanagan twist. These and other satisfied club members are proof that buying the best Okanagan wines on the market can be affordable, convenient, and fun.
The Okanagan Wine Club: Bringing You Quality Local Wines You’ll Love
Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we’re passionate about bringing you great local wines from world-renowned and boutique wineries. As wine lovers ourselves, we know how challenging it is to walk into a liquor store and find a new bottle of wine to try (many of our selections CAN’T be found in liquor stores). Will it pair nicely with the meal you’ve planned? Is it a good vintage? We’ve had these questions ourselves, and that’s why we work hard to take the guesswork out of trying new wines. We work directly with some of the Okanagan’s best wineries to hand-select the top seasonal offerings and bring them straight to your door.
What does that mean? It means you can spend less time analyzing your wines and more time enjoying them. It means you’ll never again have to guess whether or not 2011 was a good year for local whites or whether you’re overpaying for that bottle of Merlot. Put away your vintage charts; when you shop through the Okanagan Wine Club, you’ll benefit from our wine experts’ knowledge and experience in choosing great local wines.
No Monthly Fee Means You Only Pay for What You Want
One common question we often get is what monthly dues we charge to be part of the club. The answer? None. We don’t charge our members any kind of monthly fee whatsoever. Joining the club is absolutely free, and always will be.

The Okanagan Wine Club is not a monthly membership site, and this is important for several reasons:
  • No monthly membership fee means you can try wines at your leisure.
  • You can pick and choose the sample packs you want to receive without having to cancel a featured pack (I always forgot to cancel and got stuff I didn’t want).
  • No inventory on hand means we don’t guarantee sales to the wineries, which means they give us their highest quality wine.
Our partner wineries know that our current and future club members are passionate about great wine, and that our members represent a significant part of the wine enthusiast community – that means the wineries are proud to present their very best wines to Okanagan Wine Club members
The VIP Lounge: How to Get In
We value all of our members and offer club members a variety of great services, but as a VIP member, you’ll receive several added perks you won’t find anywhere else. Our VIP members benefit from all sorts of bonus offers that the general public won’t ever hear about. VIP members also have priority access to exclusive wine packs, so you can order your wines a full day before the general public and benefit from exclusive deals from our partner organizations.
FAQ
Do I Need to Sign a Contract?
Not at all! Joining the Okanagan Wine Club is entirely free and doesn’t require any paperwork. You have no contract with us and may choose to unsubscribe at any time. We do not trap you into monthly charges…you simply buy the sample packs you want 🙂 Simple.
What Happen If I Want to Leave the Okanagan Wine Club?
You don’t really have to leave, as you are not in a subscription! You just don’t buy anymore (but we doubt that will happen).
Is This a Connoisseurs-Only Club? Do I Have to Know Anything About Wine to Join the Club?
It can seem intimidating at first to join a wine club when you know nothing about wine, but rest assured you have nothing to fear. The Okanagan Wine Club is proud to offer a variety of educational materials that will help you to become a wine master in no time. Our weekly newsletters and blog articles are full of great information that can help you to better understand the wine world. With these materials, you’ll learn about wine regions, flavour and texture profiles, and all the big industry news. Best of all, it’s written in a beginner-friendly manner that assumes absolutely zero knowledge of wine, wine pairings, or the wine industry. Even if you’re starting fresh with no wine background whatsoever, you’ll love what we have to offer – and you’ll quickly learn everything you need to know.

Best of all, joining the Okanagan Wine Club is completely free and requires no monthly commitment. So even if you’re not a “wine club” person, you can still learn about, enjoy, and discuss the best wines in the Okanagan.
I Only Like One Kind of Wine!
One of the great advantages of joining our wine club is that you’ll be able to try new, boutique wines easier than ever. Perhaps the reason you don’t like white wines, for instance, is because you haven’t yet found the right white. Wines come in many diverse forms and flavour profiles, and by ordering today you get to try 6 new wines.
I Don’t Drink Enough Wine to Justify Joining a Wine Club!
Even if you don’t necessarily drink wine on a regular basis, you probably still celebrate with it, or entertain family and friends. It’s never a bad idea to have a few bottles of wine on hand should some old friends unexpectedly drop in – and by being prepared, you’ll look like a fantastic host. Wine also makes an excellent gift for birthdays and holidays. Invited for a dinner party? Quickly grab a nice bottle with a story to tell. No one will ship you wine automatically. If you order once, that’s it (until you choose to order more).
I’m Afraid to Give Out My Credit Card Number Online!
We understand that e-commerce can be intimidating, and credit card fraud is a real concern. We ensure that the winery in turn has a payment platform that uses secure SSL verification, a security method that prevents third parties from getting your information. SSL verification ensures that your computer only connects to trusted sites that independent third parties have confirmed as reliable. It’s the technological equivalent of keeping your credit card in a box with two different locks protecting it.
What If I Don’t Like Your Wine?
Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we strive to bring you the best wine deals in the region – and in support of that mission, we’ve chosen to focus exclusively on cultivating and distributing a great selection of products. By partnering with several different wineries, we’re able to offer you a wider selection of wines to try and enjoy.

Sadly, this means we have no control over the wine making process, and therefore we cannot guarantee the quality of each individual bottle. However, many of our partner wineries do allow you to return wine directly to the winery if the quality has been compromised. If you are unsatisfied with your wine purchase or the quality of your wine, please email us to help you solve the issue.
There’s A Specific Kind of Wine I Want, But You Don’t Offer It!
The great freedom we offer over traditional wine membership sites is that you, the user, are free to order the wine packs you want and decline the wine packs you don’t want. So thankfully, you’re not obligated to buy a wine you don’t think you’ll enjoy (we encourage trying new wines).

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we try to come out with new offers every two weeks. If you don’t see your preferred wine in our offers, send us an email and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
Where am I Purchasing The Wine?
You are purchasing wine directly from the winery. All on their site but we are working closely with the wineries to ensure that OWC members get treated as true VIPs and enjoy a quality experience every time.
